More About This Book

Overview

Mad Dog's Guide To Club Fed was written for those who are facing time in federal prison and for those who care about them. This book provides all of the facts in a very reader friendly way. Its ample text (312 pages of large format) provides thoughtful yet direct answers to the 145 most essential questions about life in the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI). This is not a storybook about an inmate's personal experiences. Here readers can easily find the answers they need without digging through pages of irrelevant yarns.

Unlike others, this guide is not marketed to unnecessarily scare people into buying a product. Those who are facing prison time have already been traumatized enough by the feds. Here the author walks you past every pitfall and highlights the many positive aspects as well. The answers provided will eliminate the mysteries that lie before you. This information is certain to give you the comfort and self-confidence you need. Numerous tips, warnings, and special notes will allow you to navigate your voyage like an old salt.

The author has a degree in education and spent four years tirelessly researching this material. His old fashion journalistic method involved relentless mining of technical details, and countless interviews with inmates and staff from across the country. All of the confusing and stressful stuff has been converted into easy to understand language. Rather than offer narrow opinions a real effort was made to back up each point with statistics, legal proof, and factual copy. Whenever possible (more often than you might expect) situations are illustrated which will enable you to turn your nightmare into an enriching, and even fun, experience.

In addition to answers to 145 essential questions about federal prison, Mad Dog's Guide To Club Fed also contains:

• The Offense Severity Scale
